Congestion charging for the upper Derwent valley

According to this report from the BBC, the scheme to introduce congestion charging for the upper Derwent valley is back on. This was supposed to happen a while ago, but for some reason the landowner (Severn Trent Water) pulled out. The road up the valley is a dead-end and is only a few miles long and parking is fairly limited, but in 1999 there were 2,000,000 visitors so I suppose some sort of control is needed.
